Number of girls in Sweden identifying as transgender spike by 1,500%

These numbers are just staggering: According to Sweden’s Board of Health and Welfare, there has been a 1,500% spike in diagnoses of gender dysphoria—girls believing they are boys—among teen girls between the ages of 13 and 17. According to the Guardian, this rise in numbers is a reflection of a shift in public opinion on transgenderism that has made many people more open to permitting young people to pursue “gender reassignment” surgery.

Critics say this spike has been enormously exacerbated by the fact that in 2018, under pressure from LGBT activists, Sweden’s government put forward a law that would eliminate the necessity for parental consent, reduce the minimum age for “sex change” surgeries from age 18 to age 15, and in some instances permit children even younger to transition. In response, some medical professionals—including one prestigious psychiatrist—warned that so-called gender reassignment surgery on children was, in essence, an experiment with unknown consequences.

Sweden is not the only country witnessing a sudden spike in children and teens—mostly girls—identifying as the opposite sex. The United Kingdom has seen a 4,000% rise in children wanting to “change” their sex in ten years, from 97 in 2008 to 2,510 in 2017-2018. The same phenomenon is occurring in Canada, the United States, and Australia. Some experts have already pointed out that transgenderism is functioning as a social contagion, but LGBT activists are insisting that there has always been thousands upon thousands of children born into the wrong bodies that must become lifelong medical patients and undergo endless hormone treatments and surgeries.
